should enable you to add a captcha at the registration stage. The
extension allows you to define a question (e.g. write out the numbers 1
2 3 leaving no spaces) and associated answer (e.g. onetwothree).
I have found the catpcha very successful in preventing the automated
creation of user accounts.
Hope this is of help
